Veteran Owned. Locally Operated.
Mattern Livestock Hauling is owned and operated by Jack Mattern. After serving in the US Marine Corps, Mattern returned to his native Sonoma County to work in the livestock industry.
Realizing a need in the market, Jack opened Mattern Livestock Hauling in 2020.
"I started this company to support our local animal community. I'm someone you can rely on for fast and authentic service. As an animal owner myself, I understand the bond you build with your animals and what it means to say goodbye. My rates are reasonable and competitive."
In The News
"This morning, my beloved horse was found down in his stall & colic'ing severely. Cotati Large Animal Vets came out to assess & examine him, but he needed to go to UC Davis immediately for emergency diagnostics & probable exploratory surgery. I had recently rescued handsome Orion from slaughter & I had not got him to the point to trust me enough to get a halter on him, so we needed someone with a stock trailer & fast. Luckily, Jack Mattern with Mattern Livestock Hauling was available. Jack arrived and was very professional and conscientious of the situation and my horses needs. We loaded him right up with ease. He also already knew the exact streets to take, once we arrived at the freeway exit to UC Davis Large Animal Hospital, which was a relief and made the going easier. Jack was supportive throughout the whole hauling process. Sadly, my beautiful boy did not make it, as his large bowel was too far swollen & necrotic to survive the surgery. After saying goodbye to my sweet, young boy, Jack provided a much-needed shoulder to cry on. I can't recommend Jack Mattern's service more highly, even though the outcome was horrible, Jack was 100% stellar from start to finish."
